A Collaborative Journey

Navigating Divorce


As your attorneys, we champion a collaborative approach that prioritizes understanding and cooperation over conflict. This method often leads to more positive outcomes for everyone involved. However, while our aim is to facilitate collaboration, we stand ready to litigate when circumstances demand a more assertive stance. Choosing a collaborative approach to divorce means opting for a more amicable and cost-effective solution. This approach addresses every aspect of the divorce process, from property division to child custody, all while prioritizing your best interests. Together, we’ll craft a tailored agreement covering a spectrum of concerns, ensuring your rights and those of your family are safeguarded.

Navigating a divorce can be emotionally challenging.

A Better Way to Separate


Support issues demand careful navigation. In a collaborative setting, we’ll guide you through calculating support, adapting to financial shifts, and ensuring a fair and equitable resolution for both parties.

Spousal and Child Support


Recognizing the uniqueness of every family, we emphasize a bespoke approach to custody and visitation. In our collaborative process, we aim for a custody arrangement that serves your child’s best interests while respecting your parental rights.



Our collaborative approach seeks to simplify the complexities of ending a marriage. With a focus on amicable solutions, we address pivotal concerns like property division, asset valuation, and debt division to achieve a fair settlement.

Divorce & Legal Separation




As your primary attorney, we serve as your frontline in communications and legal procedures, attending hearings and ensuring your rights are protected.

Full Representation

As consulting attorneys, we advocate for your interests, offering guidance on settlement strategies, reviewing proposals, and ensuring legal compliance, all without appearing in court.


As neutral mediators, we'll guide you towards mutual resolutions on varying disputes, always striving for an agreement that benefits all. 


Different divorces require different approaches. We offer mediation, consulting, and full representation, tailored to your unique needs.

California is a no-fault divorce state, which means that either spouse can file for divorce without proving any wrongdoing on the part of the other spouse. The most common grounds for divorce in California are irreconcilable differences.

The length of the divorce process varies depending on the complexity of the case and the level of cooperation between the spouses. There is a mandatory waiting period of six months from the date the respondent is served with divorce papers before a divorce can be finalized in California. However, parties can resolve the entirety of their case before the six-month time period, but you will not be returned to the status of single before then.

California is a community property state, meaning that all assets and debts acquired during the marriage are generally divided equally between the spouses. Separate property, which includes assets and debts acquired before the marriage, inheritances, and gifts, remains the separate property of the spouse who acquired it.

In California, child custody decisions are based on the best interests of the child. Factors considered include the child’s age, health, emotional ties to both parents, the ability of each parent to care for the child, and the child’s wishes if they are of a sufficient age and maturity.

Spousal support, or alimony, is determined on a case-by-case basis, considering various factors such as the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, the standard of living during the marriage, and the needs of each spouse. The goal of spousal support is to ensure that both parties can maintain a similar standard of living to what they experienced during the marriage.

Asked Questions


- Scott K., Past Client

"I had the good fortune of being one of Callan Olsen's clients recently. She was an absolute delight to work with, from the initial phone consult to the project coming to a successful conclusion. Callan listened patiently, communicated clearly, understood the nuance of what I hoped to achieve, and explained how the process would work, and how much it would cost. Callan was always highly responsive to me and to the other attorney involved. She was friendly, professional, and has a good sense of humor."

"My husband and I retained Jordan for separate matters and cases. We both enjoyed working with her and felt confident through the process. She was very communicative, compassionate, and timely. With her experience and knowledge on family law (specifically child support matters), she gave us the run down on possible outcomes and her professional advice on what is best for us. Her rates are very reasonable for the services and treatment she provided to us. We will definitely without a doubt use her again in the future!"
